NCAA executive hints at doom for ACC bubble teams

NCAA executive hints at doom for ACC bubble teams

Jeff Dowtin added 16 points and 10 assists for the Rams, while Russell and E.C. Matthews both had 14 points to help erase an 11-point second-half deficit.

On Sunday from Verizon Center, we've got Atlantic 10 Tournament action coming as the Davidson Wildcats and the Rhode Island Rams meet up on the college basketball court.

"I have not even thought about that at this point". Dowtin and senior guard Jarvis Garrett drained 3-pointers and Dowtin connected on a 15-footer to give Rhode Island a 53-52 edge with 4:23 left.

"I would say, 'I'm sorry, ' but I'm not", said smiling senior Rusty Reigel, who was a freshman the last time Davidson participated in March Madness.

"When they shoot the ball the way they shot it today they are hard to beat", said Bonnies head coach Mark Schmidt. After Newkirk tied it with a basket on the next possession, Russell connected on a 3 to give the Rams the lead for good. As of Sunday morning, 67% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Rams to cover the 2-point spread. "I guess for the first half we were rushing out shots a little bit but we were taking good shots knowing that we could make them". The Rams were 14-for-31 on 3-pointers on Saturday, a season high in makes, and URI handed out 22 assists against just five turnovers.

Saint Joseph's wasn't as effective in turning points into turnovers - 6 points from turnovers, compared to Rhode Island's 14. Rhode Island is expected to receive an at-large bid as part of the NCAA field.


"We didn't get exactly what we deserved", Martelli said.

Rhode Island led 82-75 on a 3-pointer by Terrell but the Hawks, who had six players in double figures, cut the margin to 84-81. "Great credit to Rhode Island". "They're going to be a big problem next year with that group of young guys", Hurley said.

Matthews scored nine first-half points on three 3-pointers as Rhode Island led 33-32 at the break. "One of our goals was to win the regular-season and win the tournament".

Rhode Island will attempt to win consecutive Atlantic 10 tournaments for the first time.

Saint Joseph's: The Hawks' season is likely finished.
